Who We Are

Founded in 1975, Outdoor Adventures by Boojum is a nonprofit organization that helps people learn more about themselves, each other, and the environment. We are an outdoor school with hiking, rock climbing, high-ropes courses, and other fun, yet challenging activities. We strive to offer a brand of education that is deeply enjoyable, personally rewarding, and unforgettable.

Who We Serve

We serve participants of all ages (kindergarten and older) who take part on a fee-for-service basis, as well as grant-supported members of community groups who lack opportunities to explore the outdoors. Our program is sustained by grants, donations, and fees for service; Outdoor Adventures by Boojum receives no public funding.
